The tour will begin on July 20th in Austin, Texas and circles around the continent until it winds up on September 17 in Vancouver.

The tour will also include two dates in Drake's hometown of on July 31st and August 1st, the same dates as his record label OVO's seventh annual festival.

Drake and Future previously teamed up for a joint headlining tour, called 'Would You Like a Tour?', in 2013, which was well-received.
